I have 2 Toshiba laptops that I created recovery disks for when they were new.  Unfortunately, I didn't label the sets of recover disks well enough to be able to identify which disks go with which laptop.  Now I would like to restore one of the laptops to its new condition.  Is there any way I can determine which set of disks is the correct one to use?


Thanks in advance.

If you are recovering because of an OS problem and not a failing drive a factory reset can be preformed if you still have the recovery partition on the hard drive. Open Disk Management. Right Click Computer > Manage > Disk Management. Look for a partition of around 12GB possibly named Recovery.




I wouldn't know how you could determine which computer belonged to what recovery set. Edit: You would need to try both recovery sets on the computer you wish to restore. If you picked the wrong recovery set then I would have to assume the computer would not boot or would not activate.
